I was Browsing and found these. From a new Call of Duty game called :United Offensive:
Thos aerial shots are very impressive. Just look at the clouds and the smoke from the engines.

Well, if anything it`ll be immersive, if short. Nice pics.

dam...pretty impressive.
very cool, always wanted to get shot down in a bomber, tried everything else! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The smoke looks fantastic, the fire is so-so, but that smoke...I can feel myself coughing already!

THe backdrop does not look 3D, its like a painted backdrop??

Does look cool but Call of Duty is one of the most unrealistic games ever so I do not have high hopes

I think they are a bit, Superluminal.

What got my attention is the supersized body width of the B-17- its about twice as wide as it is in reality!

Also the framing on the Sperry upper turret is too narrow, but I guess as its CoD we can't be critical as its not really to concerned with issues like that.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

I was thinking and i reckon those backdrops are actually just artwork and not actually modelled.

This will clearly be a level in Cod that just rolls thorugh in a very linear fashion where you have to unrealistically shoot down 30 109s before you land safely back at base!

We shall see

I don't know . . . the COD graphics engine is quite impressive. I can't help but think, however, that if the background with the clouds in that shot are actually modelled, it would slow the average PC to a grinding halt, so yeah, I'd say that is a backdrop. I'd also guess that you can be a gunner, but not a pilot http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The ammo boxes on the waist guns are rather a long way off the mark too - no doubt easier to model than flexible belt guides.

Interesting though - no doubt it will sell like the proverbial hotcakes.

I'm trying to determine exactly what kind of German fighters those are in the 2nd & 3rd shots. I think in the 3rd shot, they are supposed to be FW-190's, but the nose looks wrong -- too pointed, almost like a Spit. And, yeah, the space at the waist gunners looks far too large. The clouds are impressive though.

Well, I finally saw the trailer, and although the clouds were pretty good, they do not appear as they do in the screenies.

We may be comparing apples and oranges; this is still a FPS . . . and does look rather fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just a few points I'd like to make here:
1. The clouds are obviously 2D bitmaps. No problem with that in CoD, since it's an FPS and you don't need the freedom of actually flying anywhere you want. Just don't expect them to look as nice in motion, and certainly don't plan on seeing them from any other direction.
2. The smoke is probably a series of 2D bitamps superimposed over one another to look like a long trail of smoke rather than a small clouds. Again, probably doesn't look as impressive in motion.
3. It's an expansion to CoD, ergo using the Quake 3 engine. I doubt you're going to need a supercomputer to run that.
4. This should be painfully obvious, but the general atmosphere in this thread seems to require mentioning it just to clear things up: this is an FPS, not a flight sim. It's obviously going to be one "shooting gallery" style level, coincidentally set on a B-17.

Don't get me wrong here, I loved CoD (it's a blast especially on the highest difficulty level), and this is undoubtedly going to be an incredibly fun level, but people seem to take this the wrong way. It IS NOT a flight sim, it IS NOT a state of the art tech demo with all the bells and whistles. What it is is an amazingly fun FPS with a lot of atmosphere and a graphics engine that looks nice while allowing you to play it without having to have a cray supercomputer.

Yeah AirBot is right in this new call of duty you just get to play a a ground soldiers, and in one of the missions you get to b a gunner in a plane, its kinda like Medal of Honor but with different gaming engine, so that just one little mission of call of duty, that it, kinda like one of the missions in the campaing, one of the levels, it not a sim where you can fly around and staff.

Proportionally, they look more like FW190 A9's. But I think you are right, they are supposed to be 109's. Just don't look quite right.

It look more like Emil because of cannon in wing! I always see Hollywood movie of B-17 attack by 109 with wing cannons blazing. It should be in under-pod not inside wings. Also I noticed "nose cannon" of Hollywood 109 seem not blazing too.

When Oleg calls the guys at CoD and says "hey....lets marry these two" I wont be leaving the house http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. What a game that would be...calling you buddy on TS and telling him your pined down in staligrad and need some fighter cover as you retreat....or your landing your JU52 and see you mates on the tarmac waiting for extraction and wathing them jump in and trying to take off under small arms fire.
That would be ...just awsome!! but I am afraid that wont happen with the Q3 engine http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif .

The RAF had B-17s, don't know much about the history of it though...
